ABOUT CORCRAFT

Corcraft is the "brand name" for the Division of Correctional Industries, an entity within the NYS Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. Industries uses the manufacturing of products to assist in the department's overall mission to prepare offenders for release through skill development, work ethic, respect and responsibility.

Corcraft uses a business model to guide decisions and balance costs, market prices and other demands from both the correctional system and non-DOCCS customers. Corcraft is funded through the state budgetary process in conjunction with the passing of the DOCCS agency budget. Corcraft is funded through an Internal Services fund, and the revenue received from the sale of products and services is utilized to cover the expenses associated with operating the program.

MISSION

Corcraft's mission is to:

  • Employ inmates in jobs that help teach good work habits and skills
  • Help offset the cost of incarceration
  • Reduce disruption in the prison environment
  • Meet expectations of NYS citizens

CUSTOMERS

By law, Corcraft can only sell to government agencies at the state and local levels, schools and universities, courts, fire departments, police departments and certain not-for-profits.

Corcraft is designated a "Preferred Source" supplier by New York State Finance Law Section 162. This means our customers should look to Corcraft first for products that fit the form, function and utility of their application. Customers can buy directly from Corcraft without having to go through a time-consuming bid process.
